UICC Compatibility Matrix

Recommended Posts

I've seen some threads recently about the differences between SIM/UICCs and though posting a compatibility matrix would help people.

 

This is pretty straightforward. The matrix has every Sprint LTE device, and what UICC card is meant for that device. Mix and matching UICC card types probably will not work, but swapping around UICC cards for devices that use the same type of card should work properly.

 

Keep in mind, you cannot simply move your UICC card to another phone to use it. Sprint's device authentication system still requires the correct UICC and MEID to be on the account to authenticate properly and work.

I wonder what the difference is between v1 and v2 of the CSIM cards.

Even the devices (right now only the iPhone 5S and 5C) with CSIM support require the MEID to be in the system? I thought for CSIM all the information needed for it to authenticate on a CDMA network was stored on the card?

Yes, even they need to have the MEID active and correct to work properly. Just because the phone and UICC support CSIM, that doesn't necessarily mean that Sprint's network is setup to allow CSIM-only authentication.

So how does Verizon do this?  Do they not check to make sure the MEID is active and correct?

Are they working on it? Do you know?

No idea. I just work retail. They don't tell us anything, just like the care reps. Those decisions are way above my pay grade (although I'm totally willing to make those decisions and pay if they want, hehe).

Are CZ2101LTR & CZ2102LWR interchangeable? Reason i ask is Sprint is sending me the 2102 for a Kyocera Torque.

I'll see if I can get the RMS SKUs for these cards as well since those are missing from my matrix. I have them on the baggies in store we keep the SIM/UICC cards in, I just didn't put them in the matrix, guess that was a mistake.  :P

 

I'm not sure if putting a world-mode GSM/LTE UICC in the phone will cause an issue compared to the domestic LTE-only one.

Nothing official I've seen, just rumor and speculation mostly. The UICC cards don't really state on the card themselves what model they are... it's on the card the UICC comes attached (that doesn't usually come with the phone, only with replacement cards).

Thanks I appreciate it. The guy who activated the Torque through chat said that he was able to somehow get the SIM Serial Number from the order and place it onto the phone in my account. Hopefully the SIM number he entered will match the one that is coming wednesday or i will have to get them to fix it.

All new devices have SIMs preinstalled, the SIM SKU is not listed on the box either for all other Sprint devices, just the number itself for the card. I doubt the G2 would be different in that regard just because it can be.

When I've tried that in the past, SNAP/FDT refused to activate it, saying the UICC was incompatible. At least, I'm pretty sure that's what I tried.

Ok, so I got the UPC codes added from the master matrix. I've also started adding new models into the matrix like the G2, Mega, etc. that aren't in the master yet. If we can get true confirmation of what card is compatible with these devices I'll add it to the matrix.

My guess is that the LG G2 sim card will be theCZ2104LWR Worldwide 4FF removable LTE + GSM

You need to make a small fix on the "Samsung" Nexus 5.

 

Thanks for maintaining this list.  It is both interesting and helpful.

Sprint would not allow me to activate the Worldwide sim on the Torque. Sucks.

Thanks.

 

At this point the list is being primarily maintained based on what we find, etc. The official listing this was originally generated from isn't updated with the new devices yet so I was quickly adding the ones we knew were coming out. I was bound to make a mistake, just thought it would be further down the line. haha

 

I also realized today that while I'm editing the list and sorting, etc. that ALL of those changes are live in front of any viewers, and that no one can override my sorting. Oopsie. My bad guys.  :P

I take it back now.  I remember reading that the Motorola X and iPhone/iPads use nano SIM cards size which according to the chart seems to be traced to CZ2104LWR   Worldwide 4FF removable LTE + GSM

 

My guess now is that the LG G2 like the Note 3, GS4, HTC One and Nexus 5 is going to use the CZ2102LWR   Worldwide 3FF removable LTE + GSM sim card since that seems to be traced to a micro SIM card size.  So if you are going to update the chart to say assumed, change it to  CZ2102LWR   Worldwide 3FF removable LTE + GSM.

3FF and 4FF refer to the card size. 3rd Form Factor and 4th Form Factor.

 

1FF - standard SIM

2FF - miniSIM

3FF - microSIM

4FF - nanoSIM

I figured that you would say this and thanks for confirming my suspicions.  The pattern seemed to be pretty clear and I was just taking a shot in the dark and assumed the 3FF and 4FF meant the sim card size.

I have changed the link to a published HTML page instead of a standard Google Docs spreadsheet link. The spreadsheet link didn't add any features, and caused issues when people were trying to view the page as I worked on it

Thank you for the matrix, it is helpful.

 

I was given a SIM that is not in the matrix, I was wondering if you guys know what it is compatible with: SIMGWW216R. 

 

Thanks.

    • Sprint can't afford to go private, they can't afford to buy back shares from stockholders, going private won't happen.  Either the merger will pass (60/40 chance at this point), if not Son will find a buyer for Sprint and take a loss (hello WeWork) and as a trader the way Sprint's shares are trading its almost as if market makers are already pricing in a merger failure.  Sprint would have to do some serious trimming off its balance sheet, sale portions of its network and subs, or even file Chapter 11.  I don't really see Sprint filing bankruptcy I've seen companies with worse earnings and survive.  Son just wants out of the U.S. wireless market and merging with T-Mobile is the fastest way to do so all while pitching this "5G for all" bs <--- I don't even have faith in T-Mobile post merger if it happens.  Sprint needs someone with deep pockets like Altice or another large cable company (and most certainly not Dish). 
    • Yes, some of you disagree with me.  That's to be expected.  Sprint sucks in some places.  But Sprint is not only great in my area, but they're actually the best.  And in most metro areas, they are perfectly usable.  But guess what?  T-mobile sucks in many places.  And I can tell you here in their home market, they're the worst carrier.  Verizon also stinks in places too.  I suppose if I lived in a crappy Sprint market, I'd go.  But I can tell you I see more and more people who leave Sprint and either come back or even if they don't, admit that the network wasn't as bad as they thought and there was a complete over dramatization in the disparity in networks.  Everybody's gotta do what's best for themselves.  And if leaving Sprint is best for you, I certainly wouldn't hold it against anyone.  I've seen many go over the years.  And I still sit here plugging away behind the keyboard.  But the one thing that won't continue is the overly negative drumbeat that's happening in this thread.  You all are starting to build off each other's negativity, causing the conversation to become one sided and pointless.  Don't want to hear ad infinitum the same droll negative grumblings.  Especially the same 'ol criticisms and Sprint can't be trusted.  Frankly, the drama is not true.  Sprint took longer, yes, but it did upgrade its network, and the performance is better.  And on the whole, it's better than its ever been.  So it cannot be said Sprint didn't do it.  They did. So let's stick to the thread discussion, which is the merger.  Not on the network performance on Lower Botswana Avenue and your thoughts on changing networks because of your block. Robert 
    • Boost founder has already said he would pay $2b for the brand back. 
    • Hi, Robert While I see your points, I respectfully disagree with some of them.  Properly managed, Sprint does have the resources to compete successfully.  But the key phrase is "properly managed", and that's where Sprint has shown critical weakness time and time again. Since Dan Hesse was screwed over in the Metro PCS debacle, and then dumped after Softbank took over, Sprint hasn't shown any signs of intelligent strategic management.  Tactically, they have tried hard to succeed, and have kept up with technology, and have tried to keep up with deployments.  But Softbank's refusal to provide capital (either directly or through 3rd parties), Claure's ham-handed cost cutting,  and Masa's tunnel-vision focus on merger have all combined to put Sprint in a desperate situation. So I agree with you that Sprint could compete in the future, but I think it is unrealistic to expect Masayoshi and Softbank to actually try to compete.  If the merger fails, I think that it is far more likely that Masa will basically dump Sprint just like he dumped Hesse, and loyal Sprint employees and the few remaining independent stockholders will be left swinging in the wind.  Sprint customers (I've been with Sprint for 20+ years) will also be hung out to dry.  I hope that I am wrong.  Actually, I hope the merger goes through, but if it doesn't, then I hope that I am wrong.  But I'm not counting on it.
